News From The Past 90 Days
Adrian Peterson to be reinstated on Friday
Can fully participate in all team activities
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Apr 16, 2:25 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be reinstated effective Friday, at which point he will be able to fully participate in all team activities, the NFL announced Thursday. Peterson has been suspended from the league since Nov. 18. Peterson pleaded no contest on Nov. 4 to misdemeanor reckless injury charges after injuring his son while disciplining him last May. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Peterson met with Rodger Goodell earlier this month to discuss his situation which includes continued counseling and keeping his nose squeaky clean. Peterson and his representatives have been adamant about wanting out of Minnesota but the Vikings have him under contract for three years including this season for $12.75 million. Stay tuned...


McFadden agrees with Dallas, $200K signing bonus
First step in replacing Murray
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Mar 13, 10:05 am

Dallas Cowboys
Darren McFadden is at the team’s Valley Ranch complex today and has agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $5.85 million with a $200,000 signing bonus, sources said. While no one expects him to step in and replace Murray, he does provide competition at the position. (Dallas Morning News)

FFToday's Take: McFadden is expected to add depth the Cowboys running back group as they look to replace DeMarco Murray's 393 rushing attempts from last season. Even with McFadden in the mix, the Cowboys could go after a top running back in the upcoming draft or make a move for Adrian Peterson should he become available.


Judge rules in favor of Adrian Peterson
Suspension overturned, eligible to be reinstated
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Feb 26, 1:00 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has been reinstated after U.S. District Court Judge David Doty ruled Thursday in the NFL Players Association's lawsuit against the NFL on Peterson's behalf. As a result of the ruling, the Vikings might now be forced to make a decision on Peterson sooner rather than later. They can release or try to restructure his contract now, and also will be free to trade him once the league year begins March 10. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Peterson will count over $15 million against the Vikings cap and is set to earn $12.75 million in 2015. Rumors of bad blood between Peterson's agent and Vikings management over the last couple days have fueled speculation that Peterson has played his last game as a member of the Vikings. Peterson can now be cut, traded or perhaps remain with the team at a reduced cost. Stay tuned...


Peterson working on reinstatement
Judge expected to rule on suspension in early March
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Feb 10, 10:30 am

Minnesota Vikings
Adrian Peterson is working in Minnesota to maintain joint custody of his 4-year-old son and fulfill league commissioner Roger Goodell's conditions for reinstatement. U.S. District Judge David Doty is expected to decide by early March whether to uphold or overturn Goodell's suspension. Goodell said Peterson cannot apply for reinstatement until April 15. (TwinCities.com)

FFToday's Take: Peterson has been attending counseling sessions and complying with other requirements in hopes of getting reinstated prior to the start on the league year on March 10th and before teams have spent the bulk of their free agent dollars. Peterson's contract with the Vikings includes $12.75 million for 2015 and even though Vikings management has stated they would like to keep the star running back, his status with the team remains unclear given the price tag and potential public relations impact.


At least six teams possibly interested in AP
Return to Minnesota up in the air
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 29, 3:25 pm

Minnesota Vikings
If there were no legal issues, Adrian Peterson would be back in Minnesota. But now it is far less certain. The Vikings would like him back -- they've made that fairly clear -- but Peterson might not be entirely comfortable returning to Minnesota. At least a half-dozen teams have done some background work on Peterson in the event he becomes available, per league sources. Both the Seahawks and Patriots have proved that running the football is key to winning championships. There will be a team, maybe even the Dallas Cowboys, that wants to make Peterson the centerpiece of its offensive attack next season. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Peterson has a $15.4 M cap number in 2015 and Minnesota may have seen enough from Jerick McKinnon that the Vikings might be willing to part with their aging 29-year-old back (30 in March). As Schefter suggests, Dallas would be a prime landing spot if the Cowboys do no re-sign DeMarco Murray - which is a distinct possibility. Along with Ndamukong Suh, expect Peterson's uncertain status to dominate the headlines in the coming weeks.
